Interior proposal would block oil shale
development on federal lands in West

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Zack Colman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 4:39:02 PM

The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development. The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation. The move is sure to rankle Republicans, who say President Obama’s grip on fossil fuel drilling in federal lands is too tight.

Comments:
The regime sure isn't waiting to fullfill their deeds of destruction. If this is how they are behaving immediately I shudder to think what we will look like in four years. I may feel worse today than Tuesday. The move is sure to rankle Republicans?? That's an understatement.

The Hill sees everything as a political football. The people most upset will be the countless workers who will either lose their jobs or lose any opportunity for one.

The commies have a whole slate of things they have been working on in secret for the past 4 years. That is why it looked like Obama did nothing at all his first term. But in truth the whole group has been planning, coordinating, and setting all this stuff up so they can implement everything at once (overwhelm the opposition) after the election--which they made sure they won. They stole the election. I even think there were moles in Romney's camp that helped them. I wish I were qualified to run the RNC and had influence among all the elected GOP. I know what the left has been up to, what they do, and I know what we need to do. But we don't have smart enough problem solvers on our side. I could do it. That is one thing I know. It is so frustrating...

But Obama said he was a "all of the above" kind of a guy when it came to energy. Or was that just said to get himself re-elected?

Gee.. wonder if any of the fools who voted for Obama are starting to feel just a teensy bit like they got rolled by Obama and his thugs.

At this rate, the destruction of America should be over by Christmas.. well before the Coronation in Washington DC in January.

I'm trying hard to stay positive and look down the road 4 years, but as each hour goes by, this administration just gets worse and worse. It is just as I knew it would be---he has nothing to fear now, no re-elect to face, so he will be insufferably Marxist and drive this nation into oblivion. I weep for my kids.

So begins the required legal farce. First, propose, then review the objections, then revise, then adopt.

They will end up doing what they please anyway.

The ritual allows influential Obama supporters time to secure exemptions for their own interests. And for attorneys to shake more money out of frightened oil companies.

Hold Democrat voters responsible. Make them answer for their vote. Do they support what he's doing? If so, why? If not, why did they vote for him when he made it clear he would do all this all along.

Time to shame and blame.

First, there ought not to be any federal land outside of Washington, DC. But as indicated by #17, "The oil will still be there when the Dems go out of power." That's why in previous decades I've never minded using up most of the Saudi oil; however, with our economy needing the benefits of more robust domestic drilling, it's time to start focusing on bringing our oil business home. If we can keep this administration from excessively regulating development on private property, we can wait four more years to start tapping resources on federal land.

#3. Obama is an "all of the above" guy. He wants to shut down ALL energy production.

This is just the beginning. He will work his way through not only all federal lands, but through state, local, and private reserves as well. It will probably be mostly the EPA, but there will no doubt be other regulatory agencies he will use for the dictatorial task of shutting down domestic energy production.

Now that the election's over the Executive branch can stop touting how the U.S. is becoming the world's largest oil producer because of their work, and resume their all-out effort to destroy the oil and coal industries in the U.S.

Getting so tired of this &@^$%#! shuck and jive, and just plain fed-up with the Leftist news never putting them on the spot with their after-it's-too-late reversals on these things.

Dems and the Liberal enemedia have been coordinating their lies to mislead the people. And that's the kind of habit that leads to armed revolt.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
